This is a very common problem in new coaches, wished someone had warned us as we found out the hard way after having to replace the front tires in the first year to the tune of $878 and then have the front end aligned.
Don't take it to the dealer. Contact FR directly and tell them what you have said here and demand they pay for a FEA. They will only do this in the first 90 days of ownership so get on it now. You will need to find a local shop that is capable of doing a FEA on such a large rig as just any shop can't do it.
Good luck. Oh and welcome to the forum.
